The Classics Reading Challenge 2014 Sign Ups!

Welcome to
The Classics Reading Challenge!

The original version of this challenge involved reading classics you haven’t read. It also had different number levels to reach. I wanted to change this up based on some suggestions I’ve gotten.

Instead of having designated levels, there will be no levels. The thing I think is most important about me starting this challenge is to get out of my comfort zone and read a book a lot of people have read and enjoyed for many years. Classics are classics for a reason, and I want to take the time to read some of them. So when you sign up for this challenge, I believe that even making it a goal to read ONE classic novel in a year is a worthy and reachable goal.

Also, instead of reading only books you have not read yet, I am going to include that you may also reread one that you have already read. There are a few classics that I have loved and really would love to read again.

Bottom line... this is a just for fun challenge to break up our regular reading program with something different. <3

  • Read at least ONE classic novel in 2014.
  • For this challenge, any book published prior to 1980 counts.
  • Books you have never read and rereads both count.
  • You do not have to pick out the book(s) you want to read yet.

If you need some suggestions on what books to read, please check out the following: Wikipedia's 100 Classic Book Collection and Greatest Novels of the 20th Century.

That's about it! I hope to have you join in with me on reading at least one classic novel in 2014. After challenging myself to reading a few, I have found it very rewarding. So, join in on the fun! <3
